  • Description


    We are Neil and Hazel (Dad and Mum), Alexander (11),Edward (10) and Harry (8) We are looking for someone to join our family from March 2019. We are looking for someone who is caring, responsible, fun and flexible and someone who can stimulate our boys. You will be part of our family, a big brother/sister to the boys.

    You will have your own car for local journeys and we can give you driving lessons to help you learn to drive on the left side of the road. We have had many international people who have joined our family over the last few years. Jose is leaving us after being with us almost a year. We would be able to put you in touch with some of them so you could learn exactly what it is like being part of our Yorkshire family.

    Ideally we would like someone to stay at least six months.
